A Delano, not Reagan

Phyllis Schafly points out the obvious:

When Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., asked Condoleezza Rice during her confirmation hearings about the Law of the Sea Treaty, she replied that President George W. Bush “certainly would like to see it passed as soon as possible.” Assuming she was authorized to deliver that shocking news, the president can no longer claim the mantle of Ronald Reagan’s conservative legacy.

The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea was a terrible idea when then-President Reagan refused to sign it in 1982 and fired the State Department staff who helped negotiate it. It’s an even worse idea today because of the additional dangers it poses.

Contrary to the baseless assertions of the Three Monkey Republicans in the “conservative” media, George Bush holds no claim on the mantle of Reagan. Reagan, for all his flaws, respected and defended American sovereignty, while George Delano, in his own words, is dedicated to upholding the ideals of the United Nations.

Whereas Reagan fired those who helped negotiate the treasonous treaty, the pretender to his legacy is eager to sign it. It is stunning, but entirely likely that George W. Bush will eventually go down in history as the worst, most anti-American president since Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Regardless of whether he is succeeded by Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush – the two leading bifactional ruling party candidates in Matt Towery’s recent poll – it’s clear that America is headed for membership in an EU-style superstate that supercedes the U.S. Constitution.
